Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Lack of wisdom and discretion?

Recommended Posts

The gospel teaches people to believe, which is to fully entrust their lives to Jesus

and to repent, which in context is to turn to Jesus for all needs and knowledge.

 

Prov 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom;

From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;

 

10 When wisdom enters your heart,

And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,

11 Discretion will preserve you;

Understanding will keep you,

12 To deliver you from the way of evil

 

Discretion, a result of wisdom, will keep people,

from listening to the serpent, who tempts believers

with a source of knowledge of good and evil.

 

There are plenty of data-bases, be it popery, Christian denominations, bible colleges,

private sources and those who produce systematic theology.

All these sources have different interpretations.

God isn’t one of confusion, therefore there can only one meaning to what has been revealed.

 

 

There is no easy way out by seeking the opinions of MAN,

as it leaves you spiritually blind like Adam was,

who sought knowledge of good and evil elsewhere.

 

From God’s mouth comes knowledge and understanding,

which requires diligent seeking, as God reveals precept upon precept.

 

Are the purveyors of knowledge of good and evil responsible

for deception and the multitude of opinions in Christianity

 

or are those, who preach a gospel, which tells people not to totally rely on God?
